Rode this morning. Trail is in good shape. Some wet spots and a lot of overgrowth. Bring your trimmers.

Going to be watching the weather closely today. If there is an opportunity and the rain misses or quits early, I will be out hacking at some of the overgrowth this evening. Both second halves of Red and Blue and upper Green need it the most. Likely to get out there over the weekend too. Maybe even ride a lap.

Anybody been out to Anderson since the Friday night monsoon? Guessing the trail is back to rideable by now, but haven't been out to look.

Just a few puddles on red, green is good, slick spots here and there. I didn't do blue figuring it was going to be deep near the bridge. Nice job trimming! Still lots to do though. Skeeters are ridiculous.

I just got a report from a friend - the red loop loop from the downhill by the river all the way to where it intersects the blue trail is super overgrown with thorns. You can't get through without getting scraped up really bad.

Thank you for the update. Yes, the overgrowth is out of control. Progress has been made, but there is plenty more to deal with.

Again, anyone is welcome to get out and do some trimming. If you don't have a weed whip, stop at ACE on the way and get a machete, doesn't that sound like fun? Or get one of the previously mentioned weed trimmers and work on your golf swing. It actually works pretty good.

Some more trimming was done last night in the aforementioned area on Red.

Rode the blue and red trail this morning and trail is running smooth. Trimming on red was much appreciated! Only a couple of muddy stops in the real low areas. Great day to ride, just got to be faster than the mosquitoes!

Only did the red loop today with the little time I had. Perfectly dry except for two wet spots. Recommend making it out there tomorrow before the supposed rain on Thursday!
